Need a clarification please:
1. was her name on the auto note and who was made responsible for the auto note in the separation agreement?
2. how long have you be separated and was it done in writing;
3. were the credit cards opened after you separated or before (i.e. w/o your knowledge)
Her name was note on the or title.
11 months legally and 2 1/2 years living apart
Opened after leaving the home for 2/12 years and 2 were during legal separation
Lets talk about the auto loan first. If she is not on the title and not on the note of the car, then she would have not way of filing bankruptcy on it. Are you saying that she just told the court the car and the note were hers and filed BK? I feel like I am missing something. Also how do you knwo that she filed BK on the car?
